East End homeowners looking for flood help

? Parts of Dune Road reopened Friday after it was closed for days, but a lot of East End residents are still under water and wondering who is going to pay for the damage.

Some Riverhead homeowners say their insurance companies told them without flood insurance, there? s nothing they can do. One resident says he?s hoping for a grant or low-interest loan.

State Assemblyman Marc Alessi (D-Wading River) says a FEMA team will visit Long Island Monday to assess damage.

Water still hasn?t drained from some streets in Riverhead. Town officials say at least a dozen houses may have to be demolished to prevent this from happening again.
